Customization - It seems that your configuration.yaml doesn't include customize.yaml

On the old RPi3 installation, I had a section called homeassistant: which contained the customize: setting.

On the new installation on the Ubutntu server under Docker, that section does not exist. So, if I try to use the Customize feature in the Configuration section of the UI, I get the red error

'It seems that your configuration.yaml doesnt properly include customize.yaml
Changes made here wont affect your configuration.'

Should this section be a part of given the nature of the new onboarding process?

You might need to include:

  customize: !include customize.yaml

The new default_config doesn’t include customize so I think that might be the issue.

Derp…thanks. Never mind the other followup.

I tried that and got this: extra keys not allowed @ data[‘customize’][‘homeassistant’]

I am using hassio, current version: Home Assistant 0.96.4

Check that you have the lines in the order I put them. You have made a mistake in your entry. Post config here.

Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc)


Uncomment this if you are using SSL/TLS, running in Docker container, etc.
